Labyrinths Selected Stories & Other Writings By Borges, Jorge Luis Book - 1962

Borges once said that many philosophical tomes could be distilled into a few pages. Many of the densely packed writings in Labyrinths demonstrate that Borges could actually perform these magical distillations and do it beautifully.
I recommend starting with the short stories “Funes the Memorious,” “The Circular Ruins” and “The Secret Miracle.” The companion piece to “Funes the Memorious” is “A Fragment on Joyce,” which you can find in Borges’ Selected Non-Fictions (page 220).
